Guyana's Colonial Capital

Georgetown is situated at the point where the Demerara river meets the Atlantic Ocean. By far the nation's largest city, the entire urban area is home to close to eighty percent of the Guyanese population. Charming if unkempt, behind the dilapidated wooden, stilted facades, the city has an alluring vibe, happening nightlife and some great places to eat. Markets are a lively place to experience the culture and see the amazing selection of fruits and vegetables grown in Guyana; two must-sees include the historic Stabroek Market and Bourda Market.
